“Cast thy burden on the Lord and He shall sustain thee” – Psalm 55:22
Child of my love, lean hard,
And let Me feel the pressure of thy care;
I know thy burden, child, for I shaped it;
Poised it in My own hand, made no proportion
in its weight to thine unaided stregth.
For even as I laid it on, I said,
‘I shall be near and while he leans on Me,
This burden shall be Mine, not his’;
So shall I keep My child within
The circling arms of My own love.
Here lay it down nor fear to impose it on
a shoulder which upholds the government of worlds;
Yet closer come, thou art not near enough;
I would embrace thy care so I might feel
My child reposing on My breast.
Thou lovest me? I know it; doubt not then, but loving Me, lean hard.
– May Prentiss Smith
